A genuine Prague experience

If you dare to go in through the unmarked door , you will find yourself in a noisy, smoky, and gererally wonderful 'real' Prague pub. Great beer , good simple food, and enough character to make you glad you dared!

Another great Pilsner Urquelle pub is U Hrocha, small and cosy beer pub on Mala Strana (under the Prague Castle) and close to Charles Bridge, so you can easily make a little stop on your walk there. The pub opens at 12:00 until approx. 15:00 is no problem to get a place, after it’s a bit tricky, but not almost... More

Just had the one beer here. Nothing of note. Service was poor too. It was in the guidebook. You win some. You lose some. I would go to U Kocoura just up the road instead. It suited me better.

When we visited Prague a work colleague of mine showed us around and made a particular point of taking us here. The Urquell PIls severed here is like nectar of the gods! My pal said that the chap who served us had been there since he was a kid and really know what he was doing. Can get very busy,... More

GREAT cheap food. Get the sausage!!!!!! I felt like this restaurant was off the beaten path and wouldn't have noticed it, except a friend who lived in Prague tipped me off to it. It's small, but a great place! I almost don't want to post on here about it as I'm afraid if it gets too popular it may lose... More

Are you looking for a great beer, good apetizers and pub atmosphere? This is the right place to go. The beer is nice, but there even places with better Pilsner beer, altough it is told that here is the best Pilsner in Prague.

We stopped here for a few one night on a night time wander through this area. Tourists are welcome but this is very much a local institution so don't expect special treatment and you will enjoy yourself. If you go make the effort with a dobry den when you enter, take a seat (or find somewhere to stand) give a... More

A traditional local pub near The Castle serving probably the best Pilsner beer in Prague and also great beer meals such as pickled cheese, pickled sausages, grilled pork knuckle, etc. Usually crowded and very authentic indeed. Don't expect to be treated nicely nor spoken to in English. Just grab a beer and enjoy it.

Ideal traditional pub in the castle district, the right place for a few Pilsner on the go. It's too crowded sometimes, but the beer is excellent.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
